Where words are sharper than swords

23.09.2009
Jönköping University's international conference on Middle East coverage scheduled for October 2-3, 2009

The role political and economic powers play in shaping media discourses from viewpoints of religion, ideology and control in the Middle East will be the topic of the Hamrin Conference on International Coverage of the Middle East, Oct 2-3 at Jönköping University, Sweden.

An extraordinary group of media executives, newspaper editors, media scholars will gather to discuss how conflicts are depicted, how the region's peoples see themselves and how the rest of the world sees them. Among the speakers will be

Jon Williams, World Editor for Newsgathering at the BBC
Tony Burman, Managing Director of Al Jazeera English
Prof. Greg Philo from the Glasgow Media Group at University of Glasgow
Prof. John Maxwell Hamilton, Louisiana State University
The conference will also feature a discussion of how the region is portrayed in the Swedish media by representatives of SVT, Dagens Nyheter, the Church of Sweden, the Jewish Council of Sweden, and the Muslim Council of Sweden. Confirmed speakers include
Lars Boström from Dagens Nyheter
Lisa Abramowicz from the Jewish Council
Abdirizak Webiri from the Muslim Council
The conference is open to the press, media practitioners, and members of the public.
Participation in the conference is free of charge but if you would like to attend the meals you will need to register. To receive a registration form please contact Barbara Eklöf:

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Layered 2D material improves efficiency for solar cells and LEDs

In the eternal search for next generation high-efficiency solar cells and LEDs, scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory and their partners are creating...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
